Re: Look at what Daddy bought

I've been saving for quite a while now. Initially I was looking at some of the cheaper models, but in the end I decided it was worth going for quality rather than saving a few bucks.

Can't wait to see the Skins in HD!

Matty hate to be a pain. I purchased that same TV a little while ago. To say the least big problems. Luckily I was able to turn it in for a Phillips. If it starts acting up, get rid of it quick.

You may have been unlucky. That Panasonic model rates very well by Consumer Reports. Right up with the Phillips models.

My Dad has the same one too, he loves it.

As far as Panasonic goes, Schneed is right they're top notch in plasmas.

Re: Look at what Daddy bought

So I called up to schedule my delivery today and man, do they try to push that extra warranty on you or what?! This lady tried to tell me that the average lifespan of a plasma tv is 3-5 years. I almost busted out laughing when she said this. In my head I'm thinking yeah maybe if you're talking about a dirt cheap model and you run it 24/7 with the brightness levels jacked all the way up.

I was polite and just kept declining, eventually she asked why I didn't want the extra warranty (for $499!) and I said based on the research I've done I don't feel it's necessary.

I wanted to say that I used to work for CompUSA and I know that you're not making much money off the TV itself, it's the warranties that you're cleaning house on.

I still can't get over her telling me that plasmas only last 3-5 years.

Re: Look at what Daddy bought

I was about to make a sizable donation to assist the overworked, underpaid staff that keep this place going.

I've now diverted that donation to fund a plasma screen for myself, seeing as the staff is obviously doing quite well.

Re: Look at what Daddy bought

Damn, thats a really really nice TV. You'd be suprised how much of a difference having a TV like that is when you're watching sports. Somtimes I'll watch stuff I could care less about just because of HDTV
